I think it was my last post I said I should be done with Wolf Mama by the end of the month. Don't get me wrong, it's steaming ahead with the power and force of The Flying Scotsman. Wheels are turning, the whistle's sounding and the fire's burning! Problem is, it's half term week here … Continue reading Ho Boy!
Okay, cheesy title. Sorry about that. Since I'm half-way through the super-secret Project A, I figured this one isn't going to be chucked into the pile of Bad Ideas. With that in mind, I also figured it'd be time to let you all in on what the secret sauce actualy is. If you've been hanging … Continue reading Point of No Return
Okay, title's a bit of a stretch but look at that name! Boda Khan? Come on, tell me that doesn't conjure images of a regal horse nomad riding across the steppe, hunting eagle on one muscular arm and a kindle-enabled device clutched in a gauntleted fist. A jack rabbit stirs in the distance. His mighty … Continue reading Even Steppe Nomad Royalty Love My Books!
Howdy folks! I've had a pretty good week so far (yeah, it's only Tuesday). Project A (the Big One) is steaming along with the ferocity of Satan on an iron horse. Project B (the smaller one) is rattling around with the persistance of an undead butler. To celebrate, I figured I'd pop a little bit … Continue reading Flower Tender’s Daughter
Nothing came of 2018 and I should probably spend a paragraph or two addressing that. It's not particularly interesting, so I'm not going to bother. I will be going through this place, ripping out any reference to the 'bullshit from before' because it doesn't really belong here. That's the past, and it's done. The present … Continue reading New Year. New Review
Stark's had to get back in his box for a while. I know, I know, I've not produced any fiction since last year and that rogue Ryan is kicking around Murder Island ready to go home. Unfortunately for him, he's going to have to stay there for a while. Thing is, I've picked up a … Continue reading Hoodoo you do?
So it's been pretty quiet around, despite my mouthing off that I'd get some work done and produce some more Stark style action horror. In all honesty I've been working on a couple of side projects that didn't go anywhere. These things happen and it's never really a waste of time if you (l)earn something. … Continue reading Hush Now!
Wolf Mama (considering changing that) now has every single scene in plotted, dissected, reassembled and stitched up. I'm ready to roll! Occasionally I get to this point and feel a massive emotional slump, as if I've told the story I wanted to tell and that there's no point cracking on. Not this time, oh no! … Continue reading Howlin’
I think I mentioned that Wolf Mama was originally set to be a short story. If I did, then I also mentioned that it's grown into something more resembling a novella. Well, since I use Randy Ingermanson's (sorry if I misspelt that) Snowflake method when I outline (it's never let me down), I've reached the … Continue reading Big Mama
Time. Where the hell does it go? I know at least two weeks have vanished since I last updated, but I'll be damned if I can say where they went! Same's true for Wolf Mama. Due to various other duties, I've not got a word in on that. Poor old Clara is frozen in time, … Continue reading Most Valuable Commodity Coming Back on the Market
